The Driver CPC qualification is mandatory for anyone professionally driving a coach, bus or lorry in the UK, with a lack of compliance costing up to £1,000 in fines. The start of career-long learning and personal development, this certification is crucial for a professional driver, and follows an exam administered by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and the Oxford, Cambridge and RSA (OCR).
Drivers taking the qualifying exam need this authoritative study guide to ensure that they’ll pass on the first try, and one resource to refer to for all updates to laws and regulations and how they affect their career. A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Freight 2018: A Complete Self-Study Course for OCR and CILT Examinations provides this study guide and resource, and publishes on 3rd January 2018.
Written by seasoned CILT and OCR professional, the updated edition of A Study Guide for the Operator Certificate of Professional Competence in Road Freight 2018: A Complete Self-Study Course for OCR and CILT Examinations has been extensively revised to include all the new legislation, and covers the eight study sections that the directive requires. This study guide includes essential practice questions and case studies to aid learning.
Dorothea Carvalho, the former Director of Professional Development at CILT, praised the book, calling it ‘an important guide for students studying for the Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) examination. For trainers preparing students for the exam and for individuals who already hold the CPC and who want to refresh their knowledge, they will find this guide to be a very useful reference book’.
